AS part of festivities for the upcoming Seachtain na Gaeilge, the March meeting of Kilkenny Borough Council will be a somewhat bi-lingual affair.
Councillors and other participants will be allowed to conduct their business in either English or Irish – but are encouraged to at least attempt the latter. Mayor Sean O’ hArgain confirmed the unusual format of the meeting last week.
“Anyone wishing to contribute may do so as Gaeilge,” he said.
“There will be an English translation to facilitate any members of the public and the media.”
Seachtain na Gaeilge is a non-profit organisation in Ireland, which promotes the Irish language during a two-week festival in March every year.
